I easily relate my work to the colors, culture and topography of cities, continents, and islands to which I’ve traveled. Having a thirst for books relating adventurous explorers lives, yes explorers, I picture myself as one of them charting my own way through this life with paint, panels, and visual artistic projection.
I find great satisfaction and just downright fun in presenting stories, images, and my own personal life energy through the intensity of color and mark. ”
until this painting I’ve entitled, EXPLORATIONS was born at my hand shortly after returning from the cruise. Rich in layering and hidden, slightly exposed, seen and unseen elements, this encaustic piece speaks to the world of exploration in life and on panel. During my reading and even on the cruise and land tours that I was lucky enough to enjoy in South America, I had no idea that much of that thinking would surface in my paintings.
